Nessa said, “Jack?”
Her voice brought him from his trance. Beating back the fear, he said, “Wait here.”
He hurried across the clearing. His heart only started pulsing again when he stepped over the log and saw the gash in the ground that had trapped his leg yesterday. He knelt, put the jelly jar back in his raincoat pocket and clawed at the dirt. When the opening was wide enough, he inched closer to look in.
Nessa called, “Is it still there?”
“Sí, but it’s sinking.”
